Google Chrome 32 final stable released

The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Google Chrome also uses a brand new javascript engine (V8), which is much faster than existing javascript interpreters. This means you can create more complex and more intensive AJAX applications with fewer speed and processing constraints. Finally, Google Chrome is built on top of WebKit, so Google Chrome users will benefit from the CSS3 features being added to WebKit as those features are released.

Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

This release contains a number of fixes and improvements, including:

  • Tab indicators for sound, webcam and casting
  • A different look for Win8 Metro mode
  • Automatically blocking malware files
  • A number of new apps/extension APIs
  • Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance
  • Flash Player has been updated to 12.0.0.41, which is included w/ this release.
  • You can read more about these changes at the Chrome blog

What this version of Chrome does is introduce the Aura UI toolkit for Windows and Linux (not for OS X though) with the aim to provide a consistent look and feel across platforms.

Never heard any build of Google Chrome called "Final" before, since it is an always evolving and always updating platform.

Title should be changed to stable, yes?

Indeed - title should be changed to "Stable" (and not all in upper-case like the word "FINAL" is - which almost indicates that it's the last build of Chrome that Google will ever release!)

Thing is I got updated to Version 32.0.1700.41 m Aura on stable last year even though I guess it wasn't final...

Sounds like the beta channel to me.

I wonder if it fixes the no audio bug in OS X 10.9 where everything is mute when using 3rd party sound card/speakers
